Hi candybar,

Underaged users accounts are closed in order to comply with COPPA laws (Children's Online Privacy Protection Act). Their content and personal information are removed when we close the account. They do not get to return to Ask with that username, nor can they post with that username, as the accounts are closed.

But they do still show up as followers, as I noticed several among my list of followers yesterday. Are they actually not there, and will those eventually disappear?

By the way, good question candybar as I wondered the same thing.

Payton, they are on here all the time! They go under the username as Copa12345 with each Copa having a different number!

@scott: You're right, they don't disappear from your follower list. Their username changes when we close the account.

@candybar: Yes, they do have a different number, but they shouldn't be actively posting. If they are online when we close the account, they can still post for a short while until they are bumped from the system. Once they are bumped, their content is removed.

Okay, that makes sense. Thanks for your help Payton! Much appreciated.

Hi guys! Yup, just recently I saw a copa account answer a question. Copa was reloaded by original username, everyone was asking how this person could still be active. : )
